I clicked support - EOS cameras - EOS R - Software and Drivers - (I am on Mac) Clicked my current Mac version - scroll down and have 25 recommended downloads none of which are a firmware update 1.8. Sorry if this is a rhetorical question here, I just bought my camera and am new to all of this. I looked up videos of people doing it but, it seems Canon has updated their website in retrospect to those videos. The current version of my EOS R is 1.4. I did ask the chatbot to point me in the right direction and it gave me a link to the page I described in the first part of this statement. Thanks in advance for the Help!
I can find firmware for my current R5 but like you I can't find any firmware for the EOS R either on the US site. Likely something is wrong with US site for the EOS R for firmware.
I found it via canon europe.
