Amazing Explanation from Apple (Hint: I was wrong)

Not really a loc issue as in this case “0” is a numeral adjective and means “None” (Aucun/Aucune). The substantive following the numeral adjective “0” would be in its plural form if this substantive only exists in a plural form (e.g. “frais”, “représailles”, etc.). This does not apply to this specific case. As a result, “0 installation”, “0 session”, etc. in French is grammatically correct.
