Measurements of the direct $CP$ asymmetry, $A_{CP}$, and the $CP$ difference in the $\mu^+ \mu^-$ forward-backward asymmetry, $\Delta A_{FB}$, are made for the $B^{0} \rightarrow K^{\star{0}}\mu^+\mu^-$ and $B^+ \rightarrow K^+\mu^+\mu^-$ decay modes using $pp$ collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3$fb^{-1}$ collected by LHCb in 2011 and 2012. The respective control modes $B^0 \rightarrow J/\psi K^{\star{0}}$ and $B^+ \rightarrow J/\psi K^+$ are used to account for detection and production asymmetries. The measurements are made in several bins of $\mu^+ \mu^-$ invariant mass squared, $q^2$, vetoing the $\phi$ and charmonium resonance regions.
