    So it has been a few months developer preview of WP 8.1 Update 1 rolled out to developers. New option which was included in this update was support for accessory app which can enable other hardware to interact with Windows Phones.

    As stated here Accessory apps and notifications | Windows Phone How-to (India)

    I wish to know is there any update to documentation or APIs to leverage this capability? If APIs like this and lockscreens are not accessible to developers I don't find sense in providing in developer preview at first place!

    You cannot develop such apps right now without special permission from Microsoft. And I doubt they will give it to anyone. If you have device, which required such app, you can contact Microsoft.
