iPhone 6 water damage

Hi. I have water damaged iPhone 6 with missing C0633. Also C5202_RF is shorted.

The phone has been recular repair shop before it came to me and they gave it regular water damage threat but the phone still not starting up.

First I want to ask can I replace C0633 with some component from iPhone 4 or 4s. There are not completely same value capacitors on 4/4s but if I can take some capasitor from them, please let me know. And shorted C5202_RF am I right that replacing it not solve the shorting issue? What is the best way to start diagnose the short issue? Any help would be highly appreciated.

@oldturkey03 Thank you for the answer! I have scemantics for i4 to i6+. But I have only i4 and i4s donor boards at this point. I didn't find exact same value component from 4/4s. Can you help a little if you find those iPhone 6 red arrow pointed caps from i4 or i4s? Or do I have to find iPhone 6 donor board? Thank you for your help!
