This pre-collapses the apples mostly so the shrinkage wont happen in the oven and leave that pocket of air between the filling and top crust.
I do this and still have some shrinkage (mostly from the mushy apples i add)

Same here. I don't worry too much about it. I just try and slice enough apples to mound up in the pan and let it settle so it looks ok.

I like to use a combination of Gala and Fuji. I will use Honeycrisp if they aren't too pricey, but for some reason they generally are. Jonathan are pretty good too.
