    Is it correct to say " appologize to you."

    It needs a subject: I apologize to you.

    If you need to specify the recipient of an apology, 'apologize to' is right. But often (usually? - I think so) the context makes that clear

    [I have done something wrong to you:] 'I apologize' - the [to you] is usually unnecessary.
    [I'm reporting an apology I made to someone else:] 'I apologized' - the [to him] is often unnecessary.
