LONDON (Reuters) - European shares steadied on Wednesday as a global equity rally flagged, with Apple (>> Apple) suppliers hit after the new iPhone release disappointed with a later than expected shipping date.

LONDON (Reuters) - European shares steadied on Wednesday as a global equity rally flagged, with Apple (>> Apple) suppliers hit after the new iPhone release disappointed with a later than expected shipping date.

The pan-European STOXX 600 <.STOXX> index ended flat, paring earlier losses thanks to gains in oil and banking stocks which offset the weak chipmakers and a fall in miners <.SXPP>.

Chipmakers supplying to Apple (>> Apple) were among the worst performers, with AMS (>> ams (Austria Mikro Systeme)) down 3.9 percent, while Dialog Semiconductor (>> Dialog Semiconductor) slipped 1.6 percent, while STMicro <STM.MI> ended up 0.1 percent.

Traders said their shares were under pressure because Apple's new $999 iPhone X will ship later than expected, on November 3. The price tag could also dent demand for the device in markets such as China.

"With the iPhone coming in around $1,000 it will be interesting to see how healthy demand is," said Mike Bell, global market strategist at JP Morgan Asset Management.

"If it's relatively healthy I think it shows that there is still quite a lot of pricing power for U.S. companies and that consumers have confidence."

Chipmakers have been the best performing among Europe's tech stocks this year, accounting for a large chunk of the sector's outperformance. AMS shares have gained 165 percent year-to-date.

Richemont (>> Compagnie Financière Richemont) fell 1.2 percent despite reporting a sales beat for its first half thanks to a recovery in the Asian luxury market. UBS analysts said weaker retail growth may weigh on sentiment.

Peer Swatch (>> The Swatch Group) also fell 3.9 percent, with some traders citing concerns that Apple's new watch could also dent the watchmaker's shares.

The merging eyewear and lens makers Luxottica (>> Luxottica Group) and Essilor (>> Essilor International) were also among the biggest fallers, both down more than 2 percent. EU antitrust regulators were set to tell the firms of concerns they have over the merger this week.

Covestro (>> Covestro) rose 3.7 percent after German drugs and pesticides group Bayer (>> Bayer) sold a 9.4 percent stake in the firm, in order to finance part of its acquisition of Monsanto (>> Monsanto).

European stocks were struggling for a further boost after sinking 7 percent over the summer months.

"Our view is that European equities still have potential for upside," said JPMAM's Bell.

"The earnings outlook is quite strong still; Europe has among the highest operating leverage of any major market so if the global economy remains strong that should drive margin expansion and earnings growth."
