    1. Will the apps be migrated from 8 to 8.1 ?
    2. Does Windows Phone 2012 SDK supports 8.1 as device for deployment ?

    Yes the apps will be migrated to WP8.1 if you have a backup already. And also all your purchases will be restored as long as you turn on the Advertising ID in Windows Phone settings.
    About the latter I don't have any clue though.

    Apps that are deployed/installed on your phone will stay intact. They will be migrated as this is an update which will never remove your personal files/settings or even apps including app data. I am not sure about the second one though. Why not check your SDK for updates.

    It simply means any app on 8.0 will be supported in 8.1 right ?
