Sept 9 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks fell in late afternoon trading on Wednesday, led by a decline in Apple shares and as energy companies dropped with oil prices.

Apple shares were last down 0.8 percent at $111.44 in volatile trading as the company's product launch event was under way in San Francisco.

Apple said it would update Apple TV with an App Store and a new interface that allows viewers to make requests through the Siri digital assistant to search for specific programs and movies across apps.

The S&P energy sector led declines among the S&P 500 sectors, falling 1.3 percent, as oil prices dropped.

The day's late losses reversed earlier gains of as much as 1 percent and followed a 2-percent rally in the major U.S. stock indexes on Tuesday.   Continuación...
