Default Difference between cider and apple juice

I'm thinking of making a small batch of hard cider, and I would like to use cider from a local orchard. But I see that a lot of people here use apple juice as opposed to apple cider and that Apfelwein can be finished fairly quickly without tedious racking. Does the same hold true for filtered cider, or will it be a longer process? What are the differences between using cider and applejuice in general.

Cider is unfiltered juice. You can use it the same, but it will not clear as well.

I'm using cider rather than apple juice (hey, it's the season). Don't worry about it, it'll turn out yummy.

Primary 1: House Ale (yay!)
Primary 2: empty
Primary 3: empty
Primary 4: empty
Bottle Conditioning: Apfelwein
Bottle Conditioning: Apfelwein + Blueberry
Kegged/Drinking: Partigyle Brown Ale
Conditioning: New House Barley Wine
Conditioning: Ghetto canned kit bitter (Surprisingly getting better w/ age)
Just Finished: Edwort's Apfelwein
Up next: More House Ale ?!?
