apples from a tree with fungus

I suspect my Golden Delicious apple tree has apple rust or something similar, but it produced a LOT of apples. The apples “look” fine but I am not sure if they are safe to eat. The leaves are covered in yellow spots and the underside of the leaves have hair-like spores. I want to make sure the apples are edible even if the tree has a fungus. My children really want to eat them! 🙂 Additionally, how do I treat the tree so that the fungus does not return next year? Is there anything I can do for it?

My research indicates that while cedar apple rust may reduce a crop, the apples are still considered edible.
