    That’s normal for the iPhone X.

    Only the plus or Max model can do home screen rotation.

    I think it's Plus models only. Last I heard, XS Max does have some of the Plus model rotation enhancements, but in apps only (such as showing iPad like sidebar in Mail in landscape), and doesn’t rotate the home screen.

    The XS Max, having the largest screen of any iPhone, does not have a landscape home screen.

    The home screen of the iPhone 7 Plus can rotate to landscape view, but NOT the home screen of the iPhone X.
