Creating apps for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

You can update your older Windows Phone project to become either a Windows Phone 8.1 app, or a universal Windows app, and immediately increase the potential audience.

Although an app compiled for Windows Phone 8 will continue to run on a Windows Phone 8.1 device, updating the project will make new features and APIs available, and simplify sharing code with Windows 8.1 projects. Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 will automatically update Windows Phone 8 projects for you.
