What is wrong with my apple tree?

Last summer, I planted a 4-1 in antique apple from Stark Bros nursery. I live in Northern Illinois, zone 5B. The apple tree seemed to take fine and all four varieties look strong to me, though last summer the tree was visited by small bugs that I think are aphids.

This year, it is putting out beautiful new growth. The aphids are back, but I'm working on that. However, the leaves are getting rust around the edges and yellow spots on the leaves. All four varieties have it. Is this cedar apple rust or something else? What to do?

I've attached photos. Thanks for any help you can provide.
