I'm not 100% but they look like these, brown marmorated stink bug.

I am not positive on the id, certainly could be immature stink bugs. If so Malathion is not reccomended for control of them, looks from my Penn State Fruit Production book they can be difficult to kill and have a long lifespan. Looks like to there reccomendation is the chemical, methomyl, product name "Lannate SP".
What specific variety of apple?
In any other fruit trees?
