```Like this?

n = 10;
list = {Array[a, n], Array[b, n], Array[c, n]};
f @@@ Transpose@list

{f[a[1], b[1], c[1]], f[a[2], b[2], c[2]], f[a[3], b[3], c[3]],
f[a[4], b[4], c[4]], f[a[5], b[5], c[5]], f[a[6], b[6], c[6]],
f[a[7], b[7], c[7]], f[a[8], b[8], c[8]], f[a[9], b[9], c[9]],
f[a[10], b[10], c[10]]}
