The apples are going to cause secondary fermentation that you will have to wait for to finish before doing anything further and you'll want to rack off prior to the other additions
I can tell you that 5 sticks of cinnamon in a 5 gallon batch is ALOT! I did 3 once and it was still a lot! I'd do 1
The dry hops should be the last thing added as their flavor/aroma will fade the fastest so time that with packaging
