Why iPhone Xs Max Home screen does not rotate to landscape

Many
iPhone Xs user after upgrading their iPhone to iPhone Xs are facing issue with
the phone that the iPhone Xs home screen wont rotate to landscape. It is sure
that the rotate screen is not lock yet the iPhone screen won’t rotate on its
lock screen. 
To
control rotate in apps
-> Rotate screen orientation of iPhone XS Max by
swipe down top right corner. See rotate icon. Tap on. Tap off. But this will not work for home screen rotate. 
What is
surprising that within from the apps the iPhone XS screen will rotate fine and
only on the home screen the auto rotation will not work anymore in iPhone Xs.

Why
screen rotation not working in iPhone Xs :

iPhone
xs max doesn’t have the feature of home screen rotate. 
iPhone
Xs will not support screen rotation on the home screen anymore. It is not a bug
but a feature added by Apple in iPhone Xs. The reason pointed behind this is to
make FaceId work much smoother, iphone won’t let you rotate the home screen. Something
to do with the cameras being fixed in portrait mode and not being able to pick
up your face in landscape so not allowed to rotate the screen in landscape
mode.

It has
created many troubles for the iPhone Xs max users as now the Xs Max does not
work with Apple TV because you need to keep turning your head and you need to
keep rotating the phone to open landscape apps. 
Hopefully Apple may come up with another solution to enable  users to use home screen in landscape mode.
