How bizarre that the firmware download selector insists you pick a PC operating system to download camera firmware. Dear Canon, the firmware on the camera is independent of the user's computer. Perhaps you were thinking of some utility software for PC vs using the camera's built in ability?
It's strange they go through the trouble of making a zip and a dmg when the zip extracts just fine on MacOS. The cynic in me suggest they did this to cut down on support questions since the instructions will only list steps for your OS.

magarity, the computer's OS is required because the zip file needs to be installed, which then unpacks the firmware and a PDF.

OK, except macOS, Windows, Linux, ChromeOS, Android, etc, etc, can all unzip zips, view PDFs, and copy firmware files to sd cards.
