The top of the tree is drying out

I planted an apple tree in the autumn . All was fine until late spring when suddenly the top started drying out. The process is going quickly. The side branches are fine. Watering doesn’t help. Can I do anything to save the tree?
Could you help, please

Unfortunately, watering was likely the ultimate cause. Staying wet for too long will facilitate a fungal or bacterial infection. I would place my bet on Fire Blight.

After this, there are a number of things that you can do. This article will help: [1]
