I think GPLv3 software may include Apache licensed software but not
the other way around.
however, I think it's ok to use 3 party librarys, but not including or
distributing with it.

LGPL
The LGPL v2.1 is ineligible from being a Category B license (a
category that includes the MPL, CPL, EPL, and CDDL) primarily due to
the restrictions it places on larger works, violating the third
license criterion. Therefore, LGPL v2.1-licensed works must not be
included in Apache products, although they may be listed as system
requirements or distributed elsewhere as optional works.
