13.3 is for any 13-compatible device. That means if you own an iPhone 6S and newer. You should get a notification automatically, but you can always check manually by going to:
Settings > General > Software Update
Unlike more recent updates, 13.3 offers a mix of bug fixes and new features. This includes a fix for mobile data (although some users are still reporting issues), and a fix for a Battery life issue (which also hasn’t helped some people). The update also includes new parental controls for calling, FaceTime and Messages; a contact list for minors; a new layout for Apple News+; Apple News stories are now in the stocks app in Canada in english and french; a new banner for “Breaking” and “Developing” stories; as well as support for NFC, USB, and Lightning FIDO2-compliant security keys in Safari.
13.3 also includes patches for Mail, Gmail and Exchange. For a full list of security fixes, Apple has posted them to the iOS 13.3 security page.
Beta seeds for 13.3.1 is already in the wild, which would suggest a new update come early February.
