1.
 

Create a new Photoshop document with a size of 600 x 800 pixels if you're going to use the the same iPad 2 picture as I.

Click here to download the iPad 2 picture.

 
 
2.
 

In the menu click File and choose Place...

Choose the picture and click Place.

You can double click the picture as well.

 
 
3.
 

You just placed the picture into a new layer.

Press Enter.

 
 
4.
 

Press Ctrl + J to duplicate the layer.

 
 
5.
 

Press Ctrl + T.

Right click the picture and choose Rotate 180°.

 
 
6.
 

Now pull down the new layer like I did and press Enter.

 
 
7.
 

Now we are going to create that gradiental reflection effect with a help of layer mask.

Click Add layer mask button.

 
 
8.
 

Choose the Gradient Tool.

 
 
9.
 

And draw a line from up to bottom like I did.

You can repeat this step as much as you want to.

 
 
10.
 

And here it is, quite simple right?
