Apple is a company name, not a product name.  You have not identified
just WHAT program is being scheduled to execute on your host.

There isn't one.  System is a special OS-level account that you don't
normally get to use for your own tasks.  Only a user logged on with
administrator privileges can create a scheduled task that will run
under the System account but not using the GUI interface provided by
the Scheduled Tasks wizard.
