Apples are food items that can be eaten by the player.
 From trees
Oak and dark oak leaves have 0.5% (1⁄200) chance of dropping an apple. This amounts to approximately 25% chance to get an apple from an oak tree and 60% chance from a dark oak tree.
 From loot chests
 From trading
Villager farmers may offer to sell apples in exchange for emeralds. 5–8 apples can be bought per emerald. As of snapshot 14w02a[upcoming], villager farmers may offer 5 for an emerald as one of their third tier trades.
 From Notch
- Note: This no longer works since at least Beta 1.7.3.

Eating an apple restores 4 () and 0.6 points of saturation.
 As a crafting ingredient
An apple can be used to craft a golden apple or an enchanted golden apple. These recipes don't work on Minecraft Pocket Edition (yet: Golden Apples may appear in later updates of MCPE.)

|0.31 (January 11, 2010)||Added apple. When Indev was still new, apples were items brought in to replace brown mushrooms to heal health. The player would spawn in an Indev House by a chest containing 99 apples and other tools. In later updates, the chests inside the house were removed (and eventually the house itself), making apples impossible to obtain.|
|A player named JTE jokingly put that Notch dropped an apple when killed at the bottom of a crafting guide he made.
This is presumed to be why Notch programmed his avatar to drop an apple when killed (see below).
