Apple sank 6.6 percent after forecasting weak revenue. The company also startled investors by saying it will stop disclosing quarterly iPhone sales.

A sharp increase in bond yields hurt high-dividend stocks.

The S&P 500 index fell 17 points, or 0.6 percent to 2,723.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 109 points, or 0.4 percent, to 25,270. The tech-heavy Nasdaq composite lost 77 points, or 1 percent, to 7,356.

Bond prices fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 3.21 percent.
