eSIM is a form of SIM that is embedded directly into the device, which is small and has similar functions to physical SIMs. Therefore, eSIM does not need you to disassemble, just scan the code to be able to install and use.

Data roaming is when you switch to another carrier’s Internet.

APN stands for Access Point Name. Each carrier’s APN has different characteristics.
APN helps you access the network when the eSIM is inserted but does not automatically capture the network.
