Please be aware that there are many kinds of "worms" that will eat apples. Are they in the fruit? Chewing on the leaves? Most likely problems include codling moth, leafroller, and apple maggot fly. You might start by looking here to helo identify the pest: https://articles.extension.org/pages/60748/insect-management-in-apple-trees-and-fruit Once you have done that, you have to treat with an appropriate insecticide, and spray regularly.
