There is a wide range of insect and disease pests in apples. MSU does not have a lot of resources but other states do have materials focused on the home fruit grower.

For home apple grower sprays where you need to protect against insects, and diseases I recommend this short resource from the University of Kentucky https://plantpathology.ca.uky.edu/files/ppfs-fr-t-18.pdf

Purdue and the midwest states have a good resource on home fruit tree care.

They also have a good resource for pest control.https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/ID/ID-146-W.pdf
