You can download these updates using Software Update on Macs running Big Sur or Catalina. It’s worth waiting a week or so before installing to make sure these updates don’t introduce any bugs; if you notice any problems after updating, please let us know in the comments. (Free, various sizes, macOS 11 and 10.15)
Yesterday, Apple released another Catalina Security Update which seemed to install fine and did not cause issues with NTFS drives like a previous one did.
Safari updated to 15.6 for Catalina also.
