I have a 6s on iOS 9.2.1 because I wanted to jailbreak, but seeing as there is almost no hope of a jailbreak coming out, should I update to 9.3.2? Is battery life better, or worse?

If you are waiting for jailbreak, stay there.
Yeah, but the thing is I updated to 9.2.1 OTA and to jailbreak you need to update through iTunes or else you could have some problems. I was planning to restore on 9.2.1 but I forgot and by the time I remembered Apple stopped signing it. I don't want to jailbreak and then have problems later on.

OTA was only a problem with like iOS 7 evasi0n jailbreak, its been a non-issue for some time.

For all I know my 12.9 was OTA'd to 9.2.1 since I got a 'recertified refurbished' from Best Buy, which to me just means an open box in generic packaging instead of retail,

Not worried about it,

If you have openGL games, you might not want to update unless you want those games to stutter.

So you mean if those games are developed by OpenGL then it will likely stutter in 9.3.2 or above?
Although, pretty sure there are only a handful of games using "metal" as their gaming engine.

Ever since I updated my iPad from 9.2.1, my games haven't been smooth since.

It's not just my imagination because when 9.3 was on beta, I tried 9.3, but my games stuttered, so I reverted back to 9.2.1 (then) and they were smooth again.

Now I'm on 9.3.1 and they still haven't fixed it.
