Yeast and stuff

If there's no yeast in apples there should be no natural fermentation with new press cloths, boards and collecting plate. Though the scratter had been used before there is no chance of cross over from cider related stuff as it only comes into contact with apples. When setting up from scratch then there should be no natural fermentation occurences if it's down to 'contamination' of cider making equipment. Even when the apples are washed natural fermentation still occurs...
Conclusion: there is indeed yeast in apples! ...or it's all down to Malus Magic.
