How to Prune my Apricot Tree?

5 years ago
It’s 16 feet tall and inherited when we bought our home last year. It’s just beginning to bud, which from my Internet research means it’s time to prune!

There are a ton of little branches on the 4 main large branches. Which tiny ones to I cut and which do I leave?

Should I top it off? 16 feet is taller than we can reach with our ladder!

I’ve done some reading but still unsure how to proceed since it doesn’t seem like this Tree was well pruned before it came in to our hands! Any advice is appreciated!
