Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) and Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) could be moving higher Tuesday following a welcome update from AT&T (NYSE: T) earlier.

The U.S. wireless giant said it sold a record 10 million smartphones in the quarter, beating its previous record by about 600,000 units.

AT&T said the robust number was led by sales of Apple iOS- and Google Android-based devices.

CEO Ralph de la Vega said AT&T sold over 110,000 smartphones per day through the quarter, giving a hat-tip to Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Windows Phone devices, as well.

Shares of AT&T and Google are lower early, while Apple is in positive territory Tuesday morning.
