No one would know whether apple would have found it without pangu's help or not. I believe that's why they released it. It's either take the chance and get the jailbreak out before apple fixes it, or no jailbreak at all. If pangu didn't disclose the bug and release the jailbreak, apple's thousands of devs or someone would have probably found out before the release of iOS 9.1

Good point

Expect that everybody did know for sure, since it was patched in latest 9.1 beta. So it was already unjailbreakable. Good point is that since we have working jailbreak for 9.0.2, by the time we get new JB most of the common tweaks will be optimized for iPhone6s and iOS 9.x.x

No, Apple responded so quickly because Pangu turned over the exploits to Apple in exchange for a reporting bonus Apple offers. Jailbreakers discover an exploit, proves it's valid to producing a new jailbreak, then Apple pays them for information on how to patch it so it won't work in the future. Pangu has done this a couple times. The other side of this are those who sell exploits to the law-enforcement community, which jailbreaks any phone in order to read locked email and messages. Such actions make the jailbreakers complicit in the very actions they're battling (locking computer systems so users can't customize their own products).

apple probably patched the exploit in one of the 9.1 betas, which is why the pangu team decided to release it for 9.0.2. This has happened many times in the past. They were probably holding onto the exploits for iOS 9.1 so it would be compatible with the iPad pro, but they saw that Apple patched it in a later version of the 9.1 betas and released it for 9.0.2. These guys aren't idiots you know......
