Your question are on fedora wiki, please read it :

  1. Fedora_Release_Life_Cycle
  2. End_of_life

Resumen from there -> Fedora Project releases a new version of Fedora approximately every 6 months and provides updated packages (maintenance) to these releases for approximately 13 months.

The following releases have reached End of Life, and are no longer maintained and do not receive any updates.

We say maintained for approximately 13 months because the supported period for releases is dependent on the date the release under development goes final. As a result, Release X is supported until one month after the release of Release X+2.

Fedora version 24 will be supported for approximately a year after its release, but you can always update to a newer version and that will again be supported for another year.

Fedora 24 should be easy to update to 25, recently there was a new automatic update feature added.
