What are the advantages and disadvantages of using GCM (Google Cloud Messaging) for iOS push notifications compared to APNS (Apple Push Notification Service)?

With the addition of iOS push notification support to GCM it is now possible to implement very similar logic to send a push notification to either an iOS or Android device through a single platform.

Are there any disadvantages to using GCM over APNS for this purpose or situations where sending a notification directly through APNS would be a better choice? What additional advantages (beyond code re-usability) does GCM bring to the table?
