Hello everyone, I am Jeremy :)
I had been using Photoshop CS6 for a long time and recently I just switched to Photoshop CC 2015. I am here for Photoshop tutorials and I hope I can get helps from other Photoshop experts in these forums.
Nice to meet you all!

(Btw, I am trying to make a iOS 7/8 logo

clone with my own words on it instead of '8'. If anyone knows how to do it, please guide me :3)

Jeremy, the problem with re-creating this logo is in matching the colors and gradients used in it's creation.

Lets deconstruct the image.

The first thing I did was to match the colors and gradients.
On a new layer, with the new layer overlaying the original image, I used the Gradient Tool, set to foreground to transparent, to add the gradients.
I used the color picker to match/sample the colors.

Turn off the original and the newly minted color layer.
Create a new layer below the newly minted color layer.
(This is where you would create your words) I made the 'eight/8' white.

Next, I just used a clipping mask to add the color to the 'eight/8'.

Add a new layer below the other two and fill with white.
