eSIM for iPhone XS, XS MAX and XR

I have an AT&T nano-SIM card and another nano-SIM card with Chinese carrier. I learned that the unlocked iphone Xs MAX can have a nano-SIM and an eSIM working together. But the Chinese carrier didn't support eSIM. So I want to transform my AT&T nano-SIM card into eSIM so that my two phone number can both work on the iphone. How can I change my AT&T nano-SIM card to eSIM?

Dumb question but don’t you still need to sync your iPhone via iTunes to unlock it after the carrier approves the unlock?

The instructions from AT&T were that you simply insert the new SIM and it should work.  I had an old unlocked iPhone 6 and it worked perfectly after inserting the new SIM card.  No iTunes needed.  Still waiting for AT&T to unlock m yiPhone Xs (again).

I used the AT&T unlock page, request was granted within 15 minutes, inserted new SIM card and all i well.  Two lines now working as expected.
