When and why is it necessary to duplicate the article twice?

Το ίδιο μήλο - The same apple

Το ίδιο το μήλο - The apple itself

Would "το μήλο το ίδιο" also work?

It doesnt really sound right in English to say 'the apple itself' no one would say that. Same as other examples like 'the uncle himself'
