Sept 9 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks ended more than 1 percent lower on Wednesday after rallying the day before, led by declines in Apple shares and in energy companies, which fell with oil prices.

Apple shares ended down 1.9 percent at $110.15 in heavy trading, erasing earlier gains as it launched new products in San Francisco.

Chief Executive Tim Cook announced a new version of the Apple TV with an app store and voice-controlled remote control. Some analysts said investors sold Apple shares because expectations were so high heading into the event.

Among Apple's suppliers, Qualcomm shares fell 1.6 percent at $54.32, Skyworks Solutions was down 1.5 percent at $86.42 and Avago Technologies was down 1.5 percent at $127.17. U.S.-traded shares of STMicroelectronics NV fell 6 percent to $7.04.

Energy led declines among S&P 500 sectors, falling 1.9 percent as U.S. oil prices settled down 3.9 percent. Chevron was down 2.5 percent at $74.92.   Continuación...
