    It's clearly (I hope) not ready for general release. I say hope, because if this is how Apple believes a dual sim phone should perform then it's a lost cause. I suggest that amongst others, you also read these threads, in order to gain a better understanding of the issues with Apple's current interpretation of a dual sim phone.

    I updated to a XS Max purely for the dual sim capabilities, thinking I could ditch carrying two phones around with me; this has not been the case, as Apple's implementation of dual sim is currently unfit for purpose - it belongs in Beta.

    First problem is to actually get an eSim, then you get on to the difficulty using dual Sim as you need it to work. I’m still on the first step!

    I would be interested to know if on one phone number you can turn on DND, while on the other number you leave it off. If that functionality is not available with it then I have no interest whatsoever. I’d love to use my current number, that work also uses, for a public number. That’s the number I keep on DND all the time and have it set where work, friends, family can get through. But I’d like a second number where I can only give out to close friends and thus leave DND off of it.
