g = gpib('ni', 0, 22); Error using gpib (line 140) The specified VENDOR adaptor could not be found.
>> instrhwinfo('gpib', 'ni') Error using instrhwinfo (line 257) The specified VENDOR adaptor could not be found.

You can communicate with GPIB instruments on macOS by using the VISA interface with a VISA-GPIB resource name. The only limitation is that your GPIB adapter needs to be supported by NI VISA.
NI-VISA support on macOS is available as of MATLAB R2015b.
