Apples like it cool, so don’t store them on the kitchen counter. Not many of us have root cellars these days, but that’s about the climate you want: cool and dark. A garage or basement would do, so long as the temperature doesn’t get below freezing.
The crisper drawer of the fridge will keep apples fresh quite a long time, if the drawer contains some humidity. Don’t store them with the onions, though; they’ll pick up off flavors.
You’ll get good results by putting the apples into a plastic bag with a few holes poked into it. Refrigerate.
Buy the freshest apples you can find. Before storing, check each apple for any damage. It’s true that one bad apple will spoil the lot.
