His father is Samoan and the matai (chief) of his Samoan village; his mother is European New Zealander.

He starred as Ethan Montgomery in the 2017 comedy-drama film A Dog's Purpose, which was released on the same day Riverdale premiered on television.

His next film role was as a stand-in for Kian Lawley in the 2018 drama The Hate U Give. He played Griffin in the Netflix film The Last Summer, which premiered on May 3, 2019. He also played singer Jeremy Camp in the upcoming biographical romantic drama film I Still Believe, which will be released in March 2020.

Apa appeared in Adam Mason's critically acclaimed 2020 thriller Songbird, which was produced by Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes. The film was accused of making a thrill plot out of the COVID-19 pandemic. Lionsgate Films announced in May 2021 that he would appear in the military drama West Pointer.

In 2021, he self-released his debut album, Clocks, which delves into the folk rock and indie genres. It gained popularity on Spotify and TikTok.
Apa attended the San Diego Comic-Con with Riverdale co-star Camila Mendes.

Apa was in a minor car accident in Vancouver in September 2017, but escaped unharmed when the passenger side of his car collided with a light pole. The late-night crash was allegedly caused by him falling asleep behind the wheel after a long day of filming.

Apa has been in a relationship with French model Clara Berry since 2020. Their child is due to be born in September 2021.

Apa was raised in a Christian home and has declared himself to be a Christian. In April 2018, he publicly criticised Australian rugby player Israel Folau for claiming that it was God's plan to send gay people to hell, describing Folau's comments as "disappointing".
