WordPress offers two types of pagination: archive pages and post pagination.

Archive pages

This displays a paginated navigation to next/previous sets of posts, when applicable with the_posts_pagination() function which has been supported since WordPress version 4.1.

Post content

This displays page links for paginated posts using the wp_link_pages() function (i.e. including the <!--nextpage-->  Quicktag one or more times).
