Apple Tree Question....

I planted 2 apple trees I got last fall. This one flowered beautifully this spring and has grown about 8inches so far this year. The past few days I've noticed this condition on the leaves (see pic). There is still new growth without any issue towards the top and outer branches of the trees. I spray with dormant oil over the winter and recently sprayed with Bonide Fruit Tree spray. I haven't seen any insects crawling around. Can someone tell em what disease this is and how to rid my tree of it? Like I said its still growing and the new growth looks good....its just the older leaves from the beginning of spring that looks like this. Thanks! Name:  photo (3).jpg

What I did was google apple tree blight, click on Apple diseases Penn. State. then click apple scab to disease management. Hope it works for you. Still edible from a quick look thru. Maybe that school is close to you and you can get first hand info.
