Red Apple ice plant (Aptenia cordifolia) can suffer from iron chlorosis which turns it yellow. You can feed with an iron based fertilizer or simply broadcast Ironite over the entire area (use in amounts as recommended on the package). There's a product called Fertilome Over the Top which is safe to use on most groundcovers and will kill grassy weeds. Just be sure to read the label before applying. It's not safe for every single groundcover plant so make sure Red Apple is listed on the label as safe to use the product on. Good luck with your landscape.
