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

Shares of Apple ended down 1.9 percent at $110.15 in heavy trading, erasing gains as it launched new products.

The company 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 ahead of the event.

Among Apple's suppliers, Skyworks Solutions was down 1.5 percent at $86.42, Avago Technologies was down 1.5 percent at $127.17, while 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...
