  • It's up to you and your specific target audience.

    Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 are free upgrades so long term most everybody should have them, but right now carriers are just starting to roll out Windows Phone 8.1.

    Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 is the latest version. It can target both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1, including Universal apps to target both.
