A number of things can cause premature fruit drop of apricots. The most common one is overbearing. When the fruit is pea size, begin thinning to prevent fruit drop. This will reduce the energy of the tree so it can put more into the production of fruit. If pollination fertilization is at too great a level for the tree to sustain, all of the set fruit will simply drop. You can also thin the blossoms rather than the fruit. The problem could also be poor pollination or fruit maggots inside the fruit.
