The heeling in advice is sound. Cold drying winds are not good for bare roots. On planting contracts, the very least we used to do was cover the roots in hessian sacking overnight. Otherwise, we'd dig a trench for the bare root plants.
I have one concern. Apple (Malus) trees are in the Rosaceae family, like roses & hawthorn. This Rosaceae family is subject to something called "replant disease". Go online to the RHS website (or google generally) to check, because I think you'll want to be away from the old tree site, if that's possible. Or else your new apple tree won't thrive. It's not something I'm an expert in, but we were taught that it's difficult to re-establish a gappy hawthorn hedge with more hawthorn. Or to replant an old rose bed successfully.
What variety were you given? Just curious....
