Please update Metro documentation for OSX

by jbern on Sat Dec 19, 2020 11:35 pm

I searched for several hours to find out how to get my mac to recognize my new Metro board.

According to this guide:
https://learn.adafruit.com/experimenters-guide-for-metro/mac-setup
(the only one I can find) the drivers will be installed automatically.

This was not true in my case, and there was no guidance how to proceed. I ended up having to hunt down the chip manufacturer to get their drivers which do recognize the board:
https://www.silabs.com/developers/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers.

As a new Arduino user this process was quite confusing and I think the guide can be much better. Please update it.

Which Metro board do you have? Here they all show up correctly without doing a thing, both in OSX 10.6 and 10.11.
