Don't rack it at either time point... rack it when it's ready!
I speak tongue in cheek, but seriously, there's no set time point for when you should rack. Racking should occur (assuming you do it at all...) when primary ferment is completely done, and you've had essentially total or near total clearance of the mead.
With my annual cysers, I've found that they clear exceedingly well on their own without a secondary, and I usually just leave them alone, and bottle directly from primary after anywhere from 4-6 months. I'm not 100% sure you will see this same behavior from apple *juice* or not...I've suspected that perhaps some of the solids suspended in the natural/fresh pressed cider that I use may help with this process...I'd be curious to have you post back your observations as well....
