How long will dried fruit be good?

We bought absolutely delicious apples from Vintage Virginia Apples (near Charlottesville) this year. I highly recommend both their apples and their hard cider for anyone who is reasonably close by. Nevertheless, as always our eyes were bigger than our stomachs, and after several months of eating and cooking with apples, we still have some left. I got a dehydrator and have now dried a bunch of apples (delicious and much better than store bought). Obviously, they should have a fairly long shelf life in an air tight container, but I guess eventually could mold or lose their flavor (?). The instruction manual didn't say anything about it, so I told my husband that I would ask my friends at chow. Any experience or recommendations for storage or shelf life?
