1. Open a new document (1280x1024px) and make a rounded rectangle with 20px radius. Add the Inner Shadow like in my example.


2. Duplicate the body layer and make it a little smaller, and fill it with black color.

3. To make the iPhone metal frame more shiny, add two more details at the top and bottom.
To do it duplicate the main body layer again, make a color selection (CTRL+left click on the layer in layers window),
move the selection a few pixels down and hit delete button. Duplicate the layer and rotate it vertically to make the bottom one.

4. Make the home button. Create a black circle and add a gray 2px outline.
To make the glossy effect at bottom, repeat the 4th step (duplicate the circle layer, make a selection and cut).
At the end make a 4-5px radius rectangle and add 2 px gray outline.
