In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to install FTDI drivers on multiple operating systems. Although this tutorial was written using Windows 7, Mac OS X 10.6, and Ubuntu 13.04, the process should be very similar, if not exactly the same, for other versions/variations of these operating systems.
I just installed macOS Mojave 10.14 Beta and when i connect an Arduino to the USB port, nothing appears in my Arduino IDE ports list.
if i try
ls /dev/tty.* i just see
/dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port connected. On macOS 10.13 everything was working ok. I tried reinstalling the driver ( http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP/MacOSX/FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_4_2.dmg ) many times, I also tried following https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/how-to-install-ftdi-drivers/mac but the port never appear.Suggestions?
Solved for me updating the driver (Use the one below):
Mac OS X 10.9 and aboveThis driver is signed by Apple

I’m on Mavericks (10.9.5) and fighting with a USB device with a “FT232R” chip (from FTDI) for USB to serial conversion.
It was not accessible in OS X (e.g. QuickTerm didn’t list it, only the Bluetooth Port + Modem).
Ftdi Usb Serial Port Driver
Using an old Windows (in a Parallels VM on the same Mac) I could (and still can) access the device, switch it back and forth between OS X and Win, and send commands to it using a terminal SW.
Ftdi Usb Serial Driver Os X
In OS X it seems to be unknown, however, the USB Device Tree reports the FT232R USB UART correctly with Product ID and Vendor ID from FTDI.
But I want to get rid of the Win (VM) solution and installed the FTDI driver for Mac, didn’t work.
As suggested by FTDI for Mavericks

I have also disabled (renamed) the AppleUSBFTDI.kext, restarted and installed the FTDI driver (version 2.3, signed by Apple). The installer always tells me “success” but I still can’t see the driver /System/Library/Extensions/FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext (should it be there?) and the device isn’t accessible from OS X.
I’ve tried again and again, there is no FTDI or USBSerial device listed in /dev when I plug it in or switch it back from Win - I guess because the (OS X) driver isn’t correctly installed?
Could someone help, please?
