iPhone 6 battery drain

I have an iPhone 6 that has the above mentioned problem. It has had precious water damage and I'm sure that there is a short on the board. Can anyone explain the best way to find it? It's not getting abnormally hot anywhere. Where is the best place to look?

Is this a good question?

After looking the board over with a scope, I found a capacitor? that was burned up. I removed it and attempted to replace it from a donor board, but didn't have the equipment/ skill to do so, but after testing overnight, the battery seems to be normal. I haven't seen an impact from removing the component, hopefully I don't! Thank you!

Finding shorts (the cause of the short at least) can sometimes be like needle in haystack. I would first desolder all shields you see water marks on and check for corrosion. Most likely where the corrosion is is where a short is, if there is one.
