In Disney's Aladdin (2019), Aladdin wishes for
the Genie's freedom, and the Genie becomes human.
But why doesn't he just stay a Genie but without the shackles, like in the 1992 version?

It was what he wished for earlier in the film. Clearly Aladdin's magical wish took that into consideration (somehow)
The Genie looked surprised. “Wow,” he said after a pause. “Nobody’s ever asked me that before. But that’s easy. To be free. To be my own master. Be human.”
“Why don’t you just set yourself free?” Aladdin asked, confused. Wasn’t that a perk of being all-powerful? Couldn’t you do whatever you wanted?
