The best time to prune fruit trees is in late winter while they are dormant and you can clearly see their branching structure.
Should i wait till next winter since these were just planted
If they need to be pruned this winter do it then. The following link is from Penn State but the information pertains to your area too, http://extension.psu.edu/plants/gardening/fphg/pome/pruning
