    Apple juice is the juice of apples.

    Cider (ALL cider is made from apples so there's no need to say “apple” cider or “lemon” lemonade) is the fermented juice of apples.

    Cider is alcoholic, apple juice is not.

    Apple juice is exactly what it says it is, the juice from apples. Apple cider is made using the whole apple. Hard cider is regular cider that they ferment to become alcoholic.

    Apparently apple juice is filtered more to remove the apple sediment so that it is clear, and it is also pasteurized so that it will be shelf stable. Apple cider does not go through either of those processes.

    In GB cider is a fermented alcoholic drink, [has a similar level of ABV as beer]. Apple juice is pure unfermented juice.

    However in the US 'cider' is the unfermented [non-alcoholic] juice, the alcoholic drink is called 'rough cider' or 'hard cider'.
