Peeling up the last of the Smart Keyboard's pelt reveals three interesting fabric strips.

Turns out, these are made of Apple's mysterious "conductive fabric." These connect the keyboard to the Smart Connector and allow for a "two‑way flow of power and data."

We're excited about this design feature, as these fabric strips should be more durable and fail-resistant than wires or traditional flex cables.

Apple even states "unlike traditional wires, the conductive fabric can withstand a lifetime of folding." Sweet!
