Are these baby unripe apples the kind that develop into apples that humans can eat? If so, I think they are safe but most likely will be bitter and probably not very desirable to your pup (other than for playing).
I have given my pup thin wedges of apple--she actually likes to carry it like a bone before eating it. She will not eat the granny smith or other more tart apple. In fact, there is a spray that is 'bitter apple' that is used as a deterrent to chewing etc. so I am assuming an unripe baby apple would count as bitter.
Maybe begin to teach "drop it" and if you see your pup going beyond playing where he is starting to eat the apple, that would be when to intervene.
