I was given 2 apples trees for christmas (1 Anna and 1 fuji) They were planted about 6 feet away from each other in my backyard. Both already have fruits and started blooming well and looked very healthy. Then 2 weeks ago the Ana started to dry and now it looks like it's already dead. Is there a chance of reviving it - and what do you think cause it to dry very wuickly.

Water stress is the most likely culprit. It can take trees several months to adjust after they have been transplanted and need to be watered deeply once or twice a week after being planted. You didn't mention how often you watered or if you have had extensive rainfall so I don't know whether too much or too little water is to blame. Try watering deeply once or twice a week and see if that will revive your trees. Hope so!
