Standalone 5G & T-Mobile

I just got a SMS on my iPhone from T-Mobile about changing my SIM card to use Standalone 5G. I talked to someone at T-Mobile, but he seemed a bit confused. He mentioned I should use my eSIM.

  • Is it worth getting the new SIM?
  • Is the eSIM Standalone 5G compatible?
  • Is there an update I need from Apple to use this new SIM?
  • What’s going on with the eSIM and 5G?
