Sept 8 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks dipped on Thursday, weighed down by Apple after its iPhone 7 failed to impress Wall Street, while gains in energy shares limited the decline.
Apple fell 2.5 percent to $105.71, its steepest decline since June 24 when Britain's vote to leave the European Union unleashed a massive selloff.
The company also said it would not release first-weekend sales of the new iPhone, limiting analysts' early visibility into the popularity of the product unveiled Wednesday.
The S&P 500 information technology index fell 0.9 percent and was the biggest loser among the benchmark's 10 major sectors, while the S&P energy index was up 1.7 percent following sharp gains in oil prices.
