Since DMG file format is preferred on macOS as compared to ISO, I have brought the links for only DMG. If you want the ISO file format, you can comment down and I will provide the ISO file too. The DMG file of macOS Catalina can be used to create a bootable USB as well as for installation.

macOS Catalina DMG can be used on virtualization platforms such as VMware Workstation or VirtualBox. This was also the reason why we have provided the standalone offline installer, instead of providing the link to the Apple App Store. You might be interested in “How to install macOS Catalina on Virtual Box?”.

There are users who want the offline installer for virtualization purposes, which can be acquired from App Store. Use the DMG file of macOS Catalina for upgrading your Mac or MacBook; or use it for virtualization. However; you will need to keep in mind that macOS no longer support 32-bit applications.

This was something that Apple wanted to do a long time ago and in Catalina 32-bit applications are no longer supported. Use the direct links below to download mac OS Catalina DMG.
