The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, AMS-02, detector is operating on the International Space Station (ISS) since May the 19th, 2011. More than 120 billion events have been collected by the instrument in the first 7 years of data taking, providing detailed insight on the features of different species of cosmic rays. This contribution reviews the recent AMS-02 results based on 7 years of operations in space and their contribution to the advances in the understanding of cosmic ray origin, acceleration and propagation physics.
