Can anyone help w/my apple trees?

I live in Illinois and I have two apple trees in my yard.

When I moved into my new house last fall, the apples were good and I made several pies, crisps and more. This year there are yellow spots all over the leaves and the apples have hard black spots on them.

I know nothing about taking care of these trees. I just assumed nature would take it's course and I would have the save harvest I did last year.

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me identify the problem and maybe provide a cure or a fix for next year.

Thanks a Bushel!!

I'm by far not an expert, but we had lots of fruit trees while I was growing up, including apples. I remember my dad would spray them from time to time with something that was like a pesticide or fungicide or something. That would help a little, but they would still often have skin blemishes, which were harmless.

Just my two cents...
