They're both front-ends to the APT libraries that do the actual work.

apt-get is older, and has now been declared to be the stable CLI for

apt is newer, and has been declared the preferred interactive command,
with evolving features.

Of course, if you don't like some of the evolving features, you can still
use apt-get interactively.
