However, it is highly recommended to use a package manager such as HomeBrew to keep your software updated. Instructions to install HomeBrew can be seen here. When HomeBrew installed you can simply install FreeCAD through your bash terminal with

brew cask install freecad

and to upgrade the software to the latest version available on HomBrew Cask you may run

brew cask upgrade freecad

If there are any issues with the HomeBrew Cask formula you may report here.
