The iPhone has already made an enormous impact on contemporary art, providing artists (and everyone else) with ever-present ways of recording and refracting the world around them, leading to iPhone-originated artworks by everyone from Rob Pruitt to Venice Biennale artist Mohamed Bourouissa. The design, of course, has revolutionized that field too. So, what does the iPhone 5 bring to the table? Well, aside from beefing up the power of its video and photo capabilities, the device will now allow users to take panoramic shots by sweeping it through the air. Monet would have had a much easier time with his Water Lilies, no? But the most significant development may be the launch of Apple’s new proprietary mapping system, to replace Google Maps.
