|There's a natural fruit drop in late June so it might be that the apples are being shed by the tree and that's why they're missing from the branches. Birds, raccoons and even chipmunks can steal your apples but there's nothing you can do to discourage them other than to drape birdnetting over your tree and secure it at the bottom around the trunk.
