Guess who's dead now.

Rumors about how many cameo scenes he filmed is not consistent.

They may or may not have filmed more than a few ahead of time, and may have already gone through several of the ones they filmed that way as it's an older rumor. The number I've heard most often is that he's shot around 10 cameo appearances ahead of time.

I saw something recently where Feige actually commented on how they do it that doesn't exactly mesh with that. Stan didn't like flying much, so they'd bring him out during production, shoot scenes for 3-4 movies in a day for various movies that were in production by going from set to set, and then be on his way.

They could easily have done both and shot a bunch that were reserved specifically for after he passed. So Feige's comments do not necessarily discount the rumor of other cameo scenes being made ahead of time.

The last film he probably will cameo in assuming they don't have a bunch of extras backlogged is probably Spider-man Far From Home, as it was the last Marvel film to wrap filming while he was still alive and was shooting concurrently with Captain Marvel and Ant-Man and The Wasp.

He'll definitely be in Avengers 4, as I believe that one was confirmed to have been filmed during production of Infinity War, and that scenes were shot during that specifically for Avengers 4. It's been confirmed he's in Captain Marvel as well, but not Spider-Man, though I think he will be.

Not sure about X-men DP, as he hasn't been in every Fox Marvel Movie, but it is possible.

Beyond that, it will depend on if and how many of those scenes they shot whether he will continue to appear in those movies. At least as far as scenes he shot while he was still alive.

I've also heard rumors that he was digitally scanned at some point and may be appearing in CGI form for short cameo roles in the future as well. From the sound of it he was pretty on board with that idea and gave them the rights to continue to use his likeness for Marvel films in various ways indefinitely.

I'm sure he'll have some kind of presence going forward in the Disney produced Marvel movies though. Even if it is just as a picture on a wall, a street named after him, or something along those lines. It's become something of a tradition and I'm pretty sure they'll keep going with it for as long as they have the resources to do it.
