Most likely, new iPad models will come out in September every year (with a few possible exceptions). Apple occasionally releases security updates for much older devices, such as this security fix in iOS 12.5.6 which was pushed to iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, and iPad Mini 3.

Apple maintains a list of Supported iPhone models on its website.

Support information for iPadOS versions are also available on endoflife.date.

More information is available on the Apple iPad website.
