White patches could be spider mites or powdery mildew. More information here:
The browning may well be a stress reaction to high summer heat, plus this is a newly planted tree. You can check the water by digging with a hand trowel - after watering, ground should be moist at least 6" deep. You can check in the middle of the week, if the soil is dry, you can water again.
