Vous n'avez plus de pommes à la maison - why isn’t it des pommes here if there are multiple apples?
This question relates to:French lesson "N'avoir plus de = To have none left (negation)"

Bonjour Mouse !
As stated in the lesson, with that negative structure (no more left), the articles follow the established rule of becoming de or d' .
Have a look at the related lesson: https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/revision/grammar/the-partitive-article-in-negative-sentences
I hope that's helpful!Bonne journée !

Thank you Aurélie. But, do you know the reason why de is used always even for plurals instead of des? It's not intuitive for me.
