Is this apple black spot in my apples?

I have a paranoia about these trees, as seen from other posts, and just have a suspicion that something is wrong with them. Since we moved into our house these are the only bits of the old garden we have kept.

I want to add more fruit tress next year, but don't want to add anything if these trees are diseased.

Any I paranoid or have I got a problem?

Thanks Michael for the confirmation.

Now the questions is what do I do......

From what little i know, it seems that it is still ok to eat the fruit. Is this correct?

Also, although I am not100% sure what type of trees it is but suspect it is a crab apple variety, do I really want this in the garden now? Crab apples aren't the nicest to have.

If you are planning to add more Apple Trees next year, this tree should be an excellent pollinator for them.

I think Qzy means crab apples are good pollinators for other apples !

apples affected with scab are ok to eat even though they do not look attractive.
