Apple has changed its bagel emoji after commentators online criticized the graphic, with some saying the previous design "looks like something you get from a cardboard box in the freezer section at Walmart."

Although emoji are defined by Unicode, an independent standards group, each tech company gets to come up with the images it uses to illustrate the emoji on its platforms.

The latest batch of emoji coming out for people's phones this fall includes a bagel -- and apparently, Apple's representation wasn't up to snuff.

Apple apparently heard the criticism, because in the latest beta version of iOS, the iPhone's software, the bagel emoji has been transformed into a more realistic image, according to Emojipedia, a widely-respected emoji resource.
