Drying peaches and apricots

So, I'm drying some peaches and apricots but this is my first time. Got apples and bananas done yesterday and I'm gonna make some trail mix with some of this fruit. What should the peaches and apricots feel like when they're done? A couple sites I found said "pliable" but pliable feels different to different people. So, how do I know when they're done? I want to make sure they're completely dried out but not too much. Thanks
