Nano iot 33 not appearing in ports MacOS Catalina

I am trying to setup my arduino nano iot 33 and after plugging in the device it is not registering the ports but it does power on. I then plugged in my Uno and it connects just fine. I've tried downloading the CH340 driver but that didn't do anything; and yes, i understand that the driver is for clones. I've also tried redownloading the arduino ide. Does this issue have to do with the micro usb cord I am using or is this a USB driver issue?

Have you installed the board cores for the 33 IOT from the IDE (via board manager) as that adds drivers ?

Also ensure the USB cable is both power AND data not just power !
