The IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the geographic South Pole, with its surface array IceTop, detects three different components of extensive air showers: the total signal at the surface, low energy muons in the periphery of the showers, and high energy muons in the deep array of IceCube. These three components allow for a variety of cosmic ray measurements including the energy spectrum and composition of cosmic rays from the PeV to EeV, the anisotropy in the distribution of cosmic ray arrival directions, the muon density of cosmic ray air showers, and the PeV gamma ray flux. Furthermore, IceTop can be used as a veto for the neutrino measurements. The latest results from these IceTop analyses will be presented along with future plans.
