Wellyou can try hardwood cuttings now - but apple trees are grafted onto vigorous root stocks - if your cutting takes, it may not grow very well on its own roots.

or it may grow into a monster sized tree as it should have been grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock :o)

My info is that apples reproduce better by stooling or layering than by cuttings. Note that in some parts of the world, apples need to be on a disease resistant rootstock.
