The Latin plural of the noun apparatus is actually apparatus (the vowel lengthens, but that's not reflected in the spelling). The English plural is apparatuses. You don't actually hear the English plural apparatuses that often, because apparatus is treated as a semi-uncountable noun: one apparatus, two pieces of apparatus. "Apparati" is incorrect in either language.
