1. An apparatus of an evolved node B (eNB) for user equipment (UE) radio capability signaling, the apparatus comprising circuitry configured to:
manage, using the circuitry, communication with a first UE as part of an initial attach procedure, wherein a first set of UE capability information is established as part of the initial attach procedure;
identify, using the circuitry, a first temporary operating mode for the first UE associated with a second set of UE capability information;
initiate communication using the circuitry, in response to identifying the first temporary operating mode for the first UE, of a UE mode match indication message from the eNB to a mobility management entity (MME);
receive, at the apparatus of the eNB, a UE mode match response from the MME;
initiate communication by the circuitry, in response to receipt of the first temporary operating mode response, of a UE capability enquiry from the eNB to the first UE; and
receive, at the apparatus of the eNB from the first UE, a UE capability message comprising the second set of UE capability information.
